Anti-Bullying Week at Norbreck

The Week beginning 14th November was anti-bullying and friendship week at Norbreck. Year 1 looked at the difference between being rude, being mean and bullying. We focused on how to be kind and made our own friendship potion. We also spent time looking at the importance of words and how to use your power for good. We explored different feelings through the character of Beegu and how to help and be a kind friend.

We have been making bread in 1M as part of our Harvest topic in RE. Take a look at the photographs.
